Thank you for the soldier photograph you sent to me through your father4. I'm glad to have it, though I am not so fond of it as I am of the smiling-boy picture you had taken for me. And your father sent the good word that you have passed your mid-year exams all right. I knew you would. Still, exams are tricky things—always better behind one than before.
I hope that Helen Louise5 will lunch with me March 26 (that was my mother's6 birthday) and then I will hear more news of you. Don't regard this as a typical New Yourk2 winter. It is not! The very worst since 1917.With Very much love Willa Cather Cadet Charles E. Cather1 Co-F-2 West Point3 New York NEW YORK, N. Y.2 MAR 14 1945 130 PM
